When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout. Thatís exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun OíSullivan, co-founders of 21st Amendment Brewery did. In a food+beer collaboration with Hog Island Oyster Company co-founders, John Finger and Terry Sawyer, the 21st Amendment Brewery team has created Marooned on Hog Island, the latest beer in their Insurrection Series, a limited edition, once-in-awhile four-pack release of a very special beer that rises up in revolt against common notions of what canned beer can be. Marooned on Hog Island has an ABV of 7.9% and was brewed using Magnum and Willamette hops with an ale yeast, a variety of malts including Pale, Crystal, Chocolate and Carafa, Rolled Oats, White Wheat and the kicker: 450 pounds of Hog Island Sweetwater oyster shells.

Saw Andyís rating while drinking this and realized I havenít rated it yet. Pours dark brown with a light tan head. Thin but consistent. Nose is bright and nutty, richly so. Earthy fruit notes and some roasty chocolate. Taste adds some bitter and briny elements and a dry palate. I guess I gave two of these to friends, so this is only my second one. Last one didnít get me excited, but this one is tasting great. Unique, for sure.

Can poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, cocoa and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, light roastiness and light coffee with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.

Smell is great roasted sweet malt...taste is the same...smooth with good sweetness and less bitterness..high flavor and very nice black/dark red appearance...medium complexity...could drink a couple in a row...but def a heavier beer without watery finish

Opaque brown. Full body, flavorful, smooth texture, long taste. Bitter moderately, dryish, crisp. Roasty flavors, coffee, dark chocolate. Well rounded, enjoyable, not exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (4031) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt a little black licorice and some sea salt brine. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes. A nice roast and salinity is left on the tongue. Not a over the top rich and roasted stout but plenty flavorful with some brine fron the oyster shells giving this beer a little something extra.

PorterPounder (7412) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Momoís Pizza - Northeast - on tap. Viscous, dark black, motor oil-like pour - light mocha colored head. Olive oil and topsoil in the aroma, but otherwise pretty neutral. Bittersweet chocolate, some topsoil, a touch of pipe tobacco, a slight whisper of licorice. Slick mouthfeel that thickens as it warms. Pretty decent.

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Taps coffee sable with a thick tan head. Aroma offers molasses, roasted malt, quality coffee, and semi-sweet chocolate plus a snip of oyster. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma while emphasizing chocolate and oyster. Viscous mouthfeel features good fizz. What better place to get marooned?

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Can courtesy of joe. Dark black. Thin head. Dark roasted coffee. Slightly salty. Wish they did more stouts. Not really getting the oysters, so it must be working well. Very easy drinking.

Sdaniel90 (940) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 13, 2016
Can, 355ml. Opaque dark brown with a foamy brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, molasses, plums, alcohol. Full bodied, fizzy carbonation. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Deep roasted flavors into a stinging bitter finish. Very pleasant toasted aftertaste. Seems watery but really isnít, its just the oyster stout profile.

Itís safe to say this isnít a Vegan friendly beer. Iím not sure how the oyster shells are used, and I probably donít want to know. Good standard Stout flavor, but am I crazy, or is this beer slightly slimy?
